SWILLINGTON INGS BIRD GROUP

… All 2017 Sightings

Sightings for August

Rather amazingly last month’s Caspian Tern reappeared for a couple of hours (2nd). A party of four Ravens flying over (19th) was the only addition to the year list.

The Brent Goose was seen occasionally throughout on the Main Lake, as was the summering Goldeneye. The first returning Pintail was seen (18th), with two Red-crested Pochards at Astley Lake (7th) and single Common Scoters at St. Aidan’s (9th and 13th) and a flock of about 75 flying west (23rd). Best raptor was an Osprey that arrived (15th) and remained for the rest of the month. There was little wader habitat so passage was poor, with a Whimbrel (1st) and Bar-tailed Godwit (30th) the best. There was just one Yellow-legged Gull at St. Aidan’s (19th). The long-staying Black Tern finally departed (7th), with one later passage bird (23rd). Small numbers of Whinchats and Wheatears passed through, with two Redstarts in Temple Newsam woods (13th) and a Spotted Flycatcher in Methley Copse (22nd). One or two Bearded Tit were seen on a few days.
